The Future of Innovation: YOUR data

About this event

Welcome to the future of innovation – where we bring together the brightest minds and leading experts from academia, business, government and society to explore and dissect the ‘big picture’ topical issues within innovation.

“Hello? Who is this? How did you get my number?” a conversation we’re all likely to have had on more than one occasion. But who does have access to our data? Should we be concerned, or is our data being collected and used for the greater good? Let’s find out!

As part of this year’s Leeds Digital Festival, we’ll consider the current research, technology, and innovations to support predictions for the future of consumer data.

During the session, and up for debate, we’ll discuss:

· How much and exactly what kind of data do we share on a daily basis (sometimes without knowing)?

· Who, if anyone, is ‘listening in’?

· How can we take better control of who we give access to our personal data?

· What are the benefits, challenges and ethical considerations for data sharing?

· What will the future of data protection look like?

Compere & host– Andy Crossley, Business Development Director, The Oakland Group
